Life after Menopause?

Yes, there IS life after menopause, but I want to make it clear that it never goes back to what it was BEFORE menopause. That's why they call it the change and I think it's time that we get honest with each other, just like we did when talking about the onset of menopause.

I am working on a new section of the Minnie Pauz website that will help those of you who have "passed through" and now have different concerns and issues to discuss (or....laugh about). Yes, Minnie has crossed over to post-menopause. She is now ready to EMBRACE HER INNER OLD LADY!

So watch the door on my front page and soon it will open for those of you who can figure out the magic word! :) Once you're through it, you'll once again find a whole lot of women who are still experiencing some of the same things you are.

For now, here are a couple of things I want to recommend: For those of you having to make decisions about your parents' care.
Fruit Of The Loom Ladies Fit for Me Cotton Stretch Brief Panty OMG are they comfortable!! :)

Totes® Double Zip Boots (little late in the year, but they're great!)

February means so many different things to different people. For me it's always been the month of love, sweethearts and flowers. But now that I'm older (and single) it's still about hearts and love, but not paper hearts and not puppy love. Rather it's about self-love and taking care of ourselves, particularly our heart health.

Some of you are still quite young to be concerned about a heart attack, but you may have Moms or other family members who could be susceptible to heart problems so you may want to take a look at the links below and be aware of the many different signs that could indicate a heart attack in women.

We have all had to become more educated about health issues and sometimes it's frustrating trying to find answers for ourselves, so it's been a real blessing to have so many women share their experiences. This helps us all feel like we're not alone and not imagining things, which we all feel at one time or another. A recent email I received stated, "I'm afraid to go to a doctor because they make me feel ashamed and stupid." This is completely unacceptable and I hope that all the doctors reading this newsletter will make sure that none of your patients ever have reason to feel like this!

Have you had a heart attack?
